Hassan Zein, a Ghanaian businessman, has sued Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A Plus for defamation.

Mr Zein alleges that the defendant's use of his picture along with alleged defamatory comments posted on Facebook on December 6, 2021, were calculated to injure and destroy his hard-earned reputation.

He is therefore seeking among others general damages of Ten Million Ghana Cedis (GHS 10,000,000.00) and an order directed at A Plus to retract the said defamatory comment and picture through the same medium used in defaming him.
